As we all know, this year has been especially difficult. What you may not know is food insecurity has doubled since COVID and tripled for households with kids in Iowa. 4 in 10 Black and Hispanic families have faced hunger during the pandemic. We want to do our part to help feed every central Iowa family in need, which means our goal is to get at least 200,000 meals!
Help us reach our goal to provide more meals this holiday season by making a donation to our Hunger Free Holidays team.
In the past year at Food Bank of Iowa, they have:
- Distributed 19,063,392 pounds of food
- Provided 15,886,160 meals
- Served 1,177,927 people in 468,068 households across Iowa
- Had 9,220 volunteers donate 31,790 hours of their time
